Toasted Oatmeal

Toasting the oatmeal before cooking it gives the cereal a nutty flavor.

  • yield: Makes 4 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 cup Irish, Scottish, or any steel-cut oatmeal, or 2 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • Pinch coarse salt
  • Infused Honey
  • Stewed Fruit

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Melt butter in a large heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add oatmeal, and toast, tossing and turning oats, until oatmeal is browned and fragrant, about 4 minutes. Add 4 cups water and salt, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until most of the water has evaporated and the oatmeal is tender, about 30 minutes for the Irish oatmeal and 10 minutes for the old-fashioned rolled oats. Serve hot with the toppings of your choice.
